  2. Can't delete unused Sticky Notes neither change their colors

    Hi Yhendra,

    Thank you for using Windows10.

    I understand your concern and would suggest that you try deleting the sticky note from the source location of the sticky notes from the specific user account.

    The AppData folder in the below step is a hidden folder, try the below step to unhide it and later try the steps mentioned.

    Steps to unhide:

    • Open File Explorer by right click on Start Icon
      and select File Explorer.
    • Click on View and check Hidden items.

    Try the below step to delete the sticky note:

    a) Open File Explorer.

    b) Navigate to the following location:
    C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes.

    c) In the Stick notes
    folder you will find a file called StickyNotes.snt

    d) You will need the file named StickyNotes.snt

    Note: If you delete StickyNotes.snt
    file this will delete all the sticky notes present on the computer event the new ones.

    Make sure that you backup any newly created sticky notes.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance and we'll be glad to help.

  3. Win 10 v1709 update and missing Sticky Notes

    Hi,

    There is a possibility that the Sticky Notes were unexpectedly deleted on your desktop due to some errors while the update is being installed. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need to know which build and edition of Windows 10 is currently
    installed on your PC.

    For initial troubleshooting, we suggest recovering the lost Sticky Notes by following these steps:

    • Open the File Explorer.
    • Type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt in the address bar and then hit the Enter key.
    • Look for StickyNotes.snt file and then open it with Notepad or Microsoft Word.
    • Look for the missing notes in .snt file, copy and paste it into a new Sticky Notes.

    To avoid issues with missing Sticky Notes, it will be best to back them up. You can follow the steps provided by
    Jennifer Bri in this thread. It serves as a guide on how to back up and restore
    Sticky notes in Windows 10.

    We'll be waiting for your reply.
